    For the sake of this discussion, let us assume a few things. First, let us assume that when judgements in capital cases are handed down, they are judicially pure. We know this is often not the case, that judgements can be the result of political machinations, bribery mismatches, racial inclinations and numerous other motivations. But let us assume for these few minutes that they are indeed pure and free from bias. Second, let us also assume that the verdicts in capital cases are always correct. That is, let us ignore the countless overturned findings, miscarriages of justice,…
  • How Google reinforces, then manages to overcome consensus bias

    Craig Bailey
    15 Apr 2015 | 8:19 pm
    From Aaron Wall at SEObook: Consensus bias is set to an absurdly high level to block out competition, slow innovation, and make the search ecosystem easier to police. This acts as a tax on newer and lesser-known players and a subsidy toward larger players. Eventually that subsidy would be a problem to Google if the algorithm was the only thing that matters, however if the entire result set itself can be displaced then that subsidy doesn’t really matter, as it can be retracted overnight. Whenever Google has a competing offering ready, they put it up top even if they are embarrassed by…

    Craig Bailey
    14 Jan 2015 | 5:35 pm
    An interesting social experiment where a women decided she’d agree with compliments men gave her. The results are pretty interesting – summary:  she mostly got criticised, called vain, and even abused. The issue is probably not a gender one (eg if the roles had been reversed and men had agreed when getting complimented, they’d likely have gotten similar pushback) but it does raise the question: what’s the appropriate response to give when someone compliments you. It’s something most of us have probably struggled with: since it can be uncomfortable, and…

    As a business leader I see the importance of diversity and inclusion for our company on a day-to-day basis. Strengthening LGBT equality – including marriage equality – plays a critical role in promoting diversity and inclusion. As Managing Director of Microsoft in Ireland, I have witnessed immense social and economic change over the past fifteen years. The country first benefitted from economic growth, then a subsequent downturn with significant social change happening in parallel. One change we have seen is more of our young people emigrating, while we have also become an attractive…
